I propose that the Departments of State, Treasury, Defense, and Justice remain, but that all the other departments be consolidated into four: Human Resources, Community Development, Natural Resources, and Economic Development. Let us look at what these would be: -- First, a department dealing with the concerns of people -- as individuals, as members of a family -- a department focused on human needs. -- Second, a department concerned with the community -- rural communities and urban communities-and with all that it takes to make a community function as a community. -- Third, a department concerned with our physical environment, with the preservation and balanced use of those great natural resources on which our Nation depends. -- And fourth, a department concerned with our prosperity -- with our jobs, our businesses, and those many activities that keep our economy running smoothly and well.
